On our way to picnic at point lobos, we decided to stop here for sandwiches. They were all outstanding! Freshly made, very good bread and large. Cakes were outstanding. They also offer a wide variety of drinks and chips.

Deli is off the main road in Monterey up a steep hill located in a residential area. They offer free parking.

Deli is military friendly, and the owner, Bennet (or as I called him Benito) is super friendly and courteous. He greeted customers and answered all questions.

Definitely give it a try.

This is once of the best places around town to grab a sandwich to go. The portions are extremely generous and the quality of ingredients is good! There's no shortage of choices as well...it's easy to find something for kids, vegetarians, and non-vegetarians alike. I recommend starting off with the "half-sandwich" unless you want to make it into two meals. Aside from the sandwiches there is an impressive selection of chips and beverages to accompany your meal! Lastly, if you're feeling up to it, don't miss the chance to grab a slice of cake...they are all excellent.

We always go to Compagnos when we're in Monterey! It's right out the back gate of the Presidio, so it's very military-friendly. The sandwiches are huge and delicious! Friendly service, great selection of drinks (including wine and beer,) and the CAKE! Just go there! You cannot be disappointed!
As an aside, we found this Deli when we lived in Monterey 20 years ago, and we've lived all over since then. We've never forgotten it!! It's STILL awesome!

Why go to a chain when you can get a delicious sandwich made with pride? You can tell that the family that runs this humble establishment loves what they do and cares about their costumers. The quality of ingredients are top. Enter with an open mind, and you won’t be disappointed. The sandwiches are huge. We should have probably shared, but we were happy to each get our own. The choices are not out of the ordinary, but there are a few ingredients they throw in that make their sandwiches unique like their bread and condiment choices. Don’t be afraid to try their mac and potato salads. They are also homemade and quite tasty. Of course the desserts are incredible too. It was a perfect find driving through Monterey. I hope to be back some day.
